Volunteers are needed to maintain the parish gardens. Individuals, a few friends, or a group can adopt a garden! Some people like roses. They could cultivate the rose garden. Some people like hostas. Those individuals could tend the courtyard. The newly planted hillside (on “D” Street) will only thrive if the weeds are pulled. A parish ministry could adopt the hillside. Contact the parish office for additional information 618-233-6320.
